My girlfriend and I felt very warmly welcomed at Sunlit Waters by Stuart, the owner/manager. The large studio we were in had excellent views and a great design to relax together after a day out and about. We were there for seven nights. The apartments were absolutely spotless when we arrived. Whoever cleans the place is doing a great job....

Got a referral from Information Booth so kudos for having the pamphlet there as may not have found it. This is the best place to stay to Airlie beach. During my 3 week visit to Australia's east coast this was easily the nicest place. The view was so fantastic also helped the weather made it all the better to view...

We spent three evening at these studios. They are nice and clean with a great view of the harbor, and in a quiet park of town. It is only two block from one end of town. It is on top of a steep hill. The climb is only about one block, but something to consider if this is a problem...

Really great location with views over the marina and just a short walk to the main street. A very clean and tidy room with good facilities. An Ideal place to stay when visiting the Whitsunday Islands.

I was impressed from the start! Situated on top of a hill, every apartment has a beautiful view of the harbour. Very quiet position, in walking distance of the main street and beach. Extremely clean and tidy apartments. Free wifi and kitchenette made my stay very comfortable and could have easily stayed more than the 3-nights that I was there....

Every so often, there's a hotel so majestic, words can't really describe the pure aura of the experience. When my family and I arrived at Sunlit Waters, the pure essence of the hotel blew us away. If God was staying in Airlie Beach, he almost assuredly would stay here. From the delightful owner to the beautiful view to the tantalizingly...

Our stay at Sunlit Waters was brilliant . Not far from the main street, but a very quiet position. Every room has a breathtaking view and all rooms are very clean, tidy and well appointed. The pool is beautiful and lovely to lounge around . The motel only has 7 rooms which makes it very personalised. The owner, Stuart couldn't...
